I do so love the phrase "stuck on stupid"


Honore: And Mr. Mayor, let's go back, because I can see right now, we're setting this up as he said, he said, we said. All right? We are not going to go, by order of the mayor and the governor, and open the convention center for people to come in. There are buses there. Is that clear to you? Buses parked. There are 4,000 troops there. People come, they get on a bus, they get on a truck, they move on. Is that clear? Is that clear to the public?

Female reporter: Where do they move on...

Honore: That's not your business.

Male reporter: But General, that didn't work the first time...

Honore: Wait a minute. It didn't work the first time. This ain't the first time. Okay? If...we don't control Rita, you understand? So there are a lot of pieces of it that's going to be worked out. You got good public servants working through it. Let's get a little trust here, because you're starting to act like this is your problem. You are carrying the message, okay? What we're going to do is have the buses staged. The initial place is at the convention center. We're not going to announce other places at this time, until we get a plan set, and we'll let people know where those locations are, through the government, and through public announcements. Right now, to handle the number of people that want to leave, we've got the capacity. You will come to the convention center. There are soldiers there from the 82nd Airborne, and from the Louisiana National Guard. People will be told to get on the bus, and we will take care of them. And where they go will be dependent on the capacity in this state. We've got our communications up. And we'll tell them where to go. And when they get there, they'll be able to get a chance, an opportunity to get registered, and so they can let their families know where they are. But don't start panic here. Okay? We've got a location. It is in the front of the convention center, and that's where we will use to migrate people from it, into the system.

Male reporter: General Honore, we were told that Berman Stadium on the west bank would be another staging area...

Honore: Not to my knowledge. Again, the current place, I just told you one time, is the convention center. Once we complete the plan with the mayor, and is approved by the governor, then we'll start that in the next 12-24 hours. And we understand that there's a problem in getting communications out. That's where we need your help. But let's not confuse the questions with the answers. Buses at the convention center will move our citizens, for whom we have sworn that we will support and defend, hoo-ah...and we'll move them on. Let's not get stuck on the last storm. You're asking last storm questions for people who are concerned about the future storm. Don't get stuck on stupid, reporters. We are moving forward. And don't confuse the people please. You are part of the public message. So help us get the message straight. And if you don't understand, maybe you'll confuse it to the people. That's why we like follow-up questions. But right now, it's the convention center, and move on.

Male reporter: General, a little bit more about why that's happening this time, though, and did not have that last time...

Honore: You are stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that question. We are going to deal with Rita. This is public information that people are depending on the government to put out. This is the way we've got to do it. So please. I apologize to you, but let's talk about the future. Rita is happening. And right now, we need to get good, clean information out to the people that they can use, hooah? And we can have a conversation on the side about the past, in a couple of months.

I love how he treats them like assets in his chain of command. I also like how he tosses a hooah in there a couple times for good measure.

I saw his first press conference and I'll tell ya, by the time he was finished with a couple of those reporters, I'm sure they were begging for Donald Rumsfeld. He delivered a serious spanking to some of those fools.

That's better than the fake interview where the General tells the female reporter she is also 'equiped' to be a prostitute.

You have to seriously have to wonder how and where they could come up with a 3 Star Cajun General to lead this operation. You couldn't have scripted it any better.

Yeah, it's sure refreshing to see someone take charge after so much incompetency. Did you notice that he says "over" before he stops talking? Like he was using a radio?

The reporters sure need some more of this high speed, low drag military style. Bunch of self-serving narcistic numb nuts.

YES IT IS!!! I almost ran off the road laughing!

When I was serving as a PAO, I had occasion to cross swords with a TV reporter who had a SERIOUS agenda and didn't want to hear the real story. I REALLY wanted to tell him to fuck off...but I knew that would have been a career ending action...so I dealt with the idiot politely.

The general has my undying envy for having the stones to make those asshats look as stoopid as they really are.

Yes! That's hilarious too. I was watching CNN's Kyra Phillips interview Honore as he led that convoy of trucks loaded with supplies and troops to the convention center. At the end of every statement, he said "over" into the phone. I loved that.

Of course as much as the guy talks on the radio, that's probably to be expected.

Yup.

I'd love to see guys like Honore (or anyone for that matter) do an obligatory "Butthead" style bitchslapping of these reporters who ask stupid questions. You know how he'd shoot a glance over toward Beavis for just a second, as if he were studying him, then backhand him about 6 times really quickly? That would be so excellent.
